Crystal Slabs, Pembroke © Rob Johnson expeditionguide.com

Crag features

The Slabs offers an apparently indistinguishable array of VS climbs up a slab, with the centre overlap being the crux. Mosaic Wall is vertical and has suffered a rockfall (1997); Thunder Wall looks loose but is solid enough, and houses the harder routes. Routes up to 220ft, single- and multi-pitch.

Approach notes

Tidal at the base of Thunder Wall at high tide.
Approach as for Crystal Slabs (Levitation Wall).

Access Advice

Night firing normally occurs on Tuesday & Thursday but may also alternate to Monday & Wednesday.

Rockfax App

Available in the Rockfax App

The Rockfax App brings together all the Rockfax climbing information with UKC logbooks and presents it into a user-friendly package for use on Apple iOS devices (Android version to follow).


Guidebooks

I Pulled a large block off the crux overhang on mural landscape E3 yesterday. The crux thread is possibly less solid now. The crux section is now unstable and not worth risking.
